GT5: Prologue vs. Forza 2 vs. PGR4

Following the release of Sony's Gran Turismo 5: Prologue, has created a video feature pitting the PlayStation 3 racing giant against Microsoft's track-based brawlers Forza Motorsport 2 and Project Gotham Racing 4.

In addition to the video we've also put together some screen grabs from similar sections of race track and taken a closer look at the car models.

So, which do you think looks the best?

You could either be playing a game with 6 tracks, 71 veichles, limited customisation and bare bones online

or for the same price play a game with 310 cars(exc dc=39 ),37 tracks(exc reverse and dc=5), deep customisation inc paint job and fully featured online mode(inc tournaments)

Or a game with 137 vehicles(inc bikes), 9 whole cities(80+tracks), track editor and full online mode(inc tournaments)

I didn't even mention damage or weather effects. not to mention in ign Gtp got 8.5 for gameplay and forzaa 2 got 9.5. all for the same price.

You can either go for better graphics or a better game and wait for Gt5 or Forza 3.Easy decision really.

Fallen_Angel4486d ago

GTP looks better but the screen shots make it look like the cars are sitting still. Where as in Forza 2 and PGR4 you can real see the effects of the speeds of the cars. Plus I think GTP is a rip off is a oversized demo why are we forced to play a demo ?

"gt eats forza 2 and pgr.." is that really honest?

Look at those pics. One is for a beta GT5P, the other is for a game that is A YEAR OLD (Forza 2).

They dont look _that_ much different.

Forza 2: 90/100 & GT4 89/100 from Metacritic.

Further, unless GT5 does some actual innovation in gameplay and features, then Forza 3 is going to eat its lunch.

Gaming is not just a graphics pissing-match guys.

GT5 (the real one) Vs. Forza AND Project Gotham 4.

Would be more fair. Sorry, but it`s true.

fenderputty4486d ago

GT5 will have been in development for yet another year, it would make the comparison even less fair. It looks better now and that margin will only continue to grow as they work on it.

Time_Is_On_My_Side4486d ago

PGR4 came out on the second year out since the XBOX 360's launch and Gran Turismo 5 is looking at late 2008 or early 2009. It isn't Sony's fault that they didn't launch their console a year ahead. If it does come out in 2008 it would be the same time frame.

Look at Perfect Dark Zero to Resistance: Fall of Man both launch titles and only one is still talked about today.

"Look at Perfect Dark Zero to Resistance: Fall of Man both launch titles and only one is still talked about today"

maybe you should be comparing RFOM to Xbox 360's other launch title, and also 2005 GOTY, Call of Duty 2.

да всё это херня

Palodios4486d ago (Edited 4486d ago )

When was the last time you heard anything about COD2? CoD4 is on everyone's lips now, but CoD2 is old news. Game of the year? maybe, but its completely forgetable compared with God of War, Civ 4, San Adreas, and Resident Evil 4, as well as the original Guitar Hero.

>Graphically< if you leave the fanboy goggles at the door its clear who the winner is here. GT5p.

But graphics are only one piece of the puzzle. Eitherway, just play the one you enjoy and forget this whole fanboy war malarkey.

Gish4486d ago

I am all about bringing back the term "malarkey"! (If it is a common term in other countrys and I am just ignorant to it, so be it)

WIIIS14486d ago

Actually if you leave out fanboism, those screenies certainly didn't do GT5p any favors cos I certainly don't see photorealism in any of the pics.

Blademask4486d ago

But considering the time put into GT5.. its a bit of an unfair comparisson.

Hatchetforce4486d ago

Since when is dev time an issue? Or an excuse. We are talking the best, not least amount of time. Valid excuses for getting stomped in the graphics department = 0.

Blademask4486d ago

I was just trying to soften the blow :\

The Wood4486d ago

tell it like it is. No allowance or humility was given when some thought it only looked so good because 'there's only 1 car on the track' so why should it be given now. Bubbles for trying not to flame though

MrBii4486d ago

is because its twice the game length Forza and PGR4 COMBINED are.

GT5 will sport over 800 cars. Each car has over 200k polygon count. Now THATS an unfair comparison.
They did twice the work both Forza and PGR are doing. And you are complaining about development time rofl. And its only taken a year longer. Thats why GT5P is released for the fans.

The Lazy One4486d ago

GT5 didn't do more work. Car models are one of the easiest things on earth to have a third party do. Not to mention a lot of them have more to do with retexturing the car and giving it new stats than actually modeling a new car.

I'm not saying the data doesn't take time, but the number of polygons in each car wouldn't increase time as they probably only modeled a fraction of them in house.

Fallen_Angel4486d ago

Sorry but GTP is not even close to photo realist. Sure it has better graphics but its still not photo realist.

@ MrBii. more cars doesnt mean GT5 is bigger and better. Forza 2 spend their time on physics and customization. The physics run at 360 frames per secound. You can apply 4000 layes of custom paint to each car. There are 100's of custom car parts. PGR4 went with real time weather and lighting to their game. GT5 wont have any of those. GT5 is about lots of cars and looks. Each game focus on different areas.

wageslave4485d ago (Edited 4485d ago )

Looking at those pictures, GT5 is exceeding Forza 2 -- lets see some video that give Forza's sense of motion some justice (the purpose for all that "blur" at the edges -- but no one can say it is "stomping" Forza 2.

Frankly, after all the hype, I expected to see the GT5 graphics actually exceed Forza 2 by "more".

But Forza 2's quality lies in physics, destructable models, weather, online features and on and on.

Graphics are just ONE part, and honestly, looking at those pics, GT5 isnt "stomping". Sure, it is looks better, but only marginally.

Dont forget GT5 wont release until next year, and Forza 2 is a year old.

A 40 dollar demo for a multi-million dollar game in production for years and completely backed by sony, vs a finished product of two games.
